“In 2017, I was arrested  eighteen times, there were more times in 2018 and between then and now, I have been taken to court for twelve different cases   and out of those cases, we have wen eleven of them.   “And that only one that borders on attempted suicide.

“I wonder how someone like me who likes cars and love life so well would want to kill himself.   “President Goodluck Jonathan, I want to say that on behalf of all of us who shot blindly, we are sorry. “The one that I later wondered why you did was that phone call.

” I sometimes wondered that if you had not made that call, be would not be where we are today “But after I saw what is happening in America, where President Trump is saying I no go gree,  I can now see the reason for that call. “There are very few people like you. I pray for that anointing” Melaiye said.
